Lucas wants to be in charge. When his friends each do something that makes him feel small (Nina scores a soccer goal, Alex is better at math, Hugo chooses his little sister over him), he belittles them and tells them what to do, soon feeling more left out than ever before. Every child in this adorable story has a unique personality, conveyed through gentle facial expressions and realistic dialogue, helping young readers build empathy and see other perspectives. Ages four to eight.
